saladFood & Nutrition

At Timber Lake, we know that a balanced diet for our campers is important. That is why we are committed to delivering healthy, delicious food using the freshest, highest-quality ingredients. A wide range of choices ensures that even the pickiest of eaters will find something they enjoy. At each lunch and dinner, campers can also choose items from our Fresh Salad Bar, Pasta Bar and Sandwich Station to complement each meal. Fresh fruit is available all day throughout the campus, and a mid-afternoon snack is served at our Boys & Girls HCs – and includes everything from fruit pops to granola bars.

Health & Wellness

teeth-brushingTimber Lake Camp’s commitment to the health and safety of every child is unsurpassed. Camp should feel like an extension of your home; we care as much as you do and pay close attention to your child’s physical well-being.

The best way to ensure that campers have a great summer is by making sure they are healthy. We train our staff to monitor that campers are drinking lots of water to stay hydrated, wearing sunscreen to protect from exposure to the sun, and getting the necessary rest. Our modern, well-equipped and air-conditioned Health Center has two on-site M.D.s, seven registered nurses, and a health center administrator. These experienced medical professionals provide excellent care to campers while regularly communicating with parents back home.
